LeRoy Butler may not have made the Pro Football Hall Of Fame, but the former Packers safety is staying busy with his new Leap Vodka and cookbooks.

He's the inventor of the Lambeau Leap. But now, LeRoy Butler is jumping into a new venture. Vodka.

"Chad Greenway, good friend of mine. You know he played with the Vikings," LeRoy Butler says. "And we had this conversation about the pandemic, how's it going. And he said 'man, I got with these Gray Duck guys.' You know, and I did my own vodka. And I said 'yeah, but I don't drink.' And I said 'well you know what though, my fans do.' My favorite uncle, he said I'll test it for you and let you know if it's any good. So he tested it. And he said 'yeah, this is it.' He said this is it. He said, 'I can tell you stuff you won't understand.' But this is it. And it was on the fast track."

Plus with his cookbooks, he's stirring up life after football.

"I want to be a great businessman in the future. African-American, having ownership is big to me," Butler says.

And he's taking not making the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year, all in stride.

"Because I was a disabled African-American in the projects who got his first new shirt from the Salvation Army," Butler says. "So to come this far is amazing."

There's one thing for certain: The grass never grows under the Lambeau Leap feet, of LeRoy Butler.
